ADHD Pills Don’t Boost Grades

ADHD Pills Don’t Boost Grades | Precription Stimulants | Scoop.it

“Despite several studies that have looked at using ADHD medication for academic performance, there’s little evidence to suggest that these drugs boost achievement test scores, grade point averages or advancement in the long run.”

 

"One recent study from the National Bureau of Economic Research looked at medication usage, primarily Ritalin, and educational outcomes of nearly 4,000 students in Quebec over an average of 11 years. The boys who took ADHD drugs performed worse in school than those with similar symptoms who took no medication. Girls taking ADHD drugs reported more emotional problems, but no measurable educational benefit. "

Psychiatric mind control engineering: drugging children for 'social justice'

It’s the latest thing. Psychiatrists are now giving children in poor neighborhoods Adderall, a dangerous stimulant, by making false diagnoses of ADHD, or no diagnoses at all. Their aim? To “promote social justice,” to improve academic performance in school.

 

The rationale is, the drugged kids will now be able to compete with children from wealthier families who attend better schools.

 

Leading the way is Dr. Michael Anderson, a pediatrician in the Atlanta area. Incredibly, Anderson told the New York Times his diagnoses of ADHD are “made up,” “an excuse” to hand out the drugs.

 

“We’ve decided as a society that it’s too expensive to modify the kid’s environment. So we have to modify the kid,” Anderson said.

Why French Kids Don't Have ADHD | Psychology Today

Why French Kids Don't Have ADHD | Psychology Today | Precription Stimulants | Scoop.it

In the United States, at least 9% of school-aged children have been diagnosed with ADHD, and are taking pharmaceutical medications. In France, the percentage of kids diagnosed and medicated for ADHD is less than .5%. How come the epidemic of ADHD—which has become firmly established in the United States—has almost completely passed over children in France?

 

Is ADHD a biological-neurological disorder? Surprisingly, the answer to this question depends on whether you live in France or in the United States. In the United States, child psychiatrists consider ADHD to be a biological disorder with biological causes. The preferred treatment is also biological--psycho stimulant medications such as Ritalin and Adderall.

 

French child psychiatrists, on the other hand, view ADHD as a medical condition that has psycho-social and situational causes. Instead of treating children's focusing and behavioral problems with drugs, French doctors prefer to look for the underlying issue that is causing the child distress—not in the child's brain but in the child's social context. They then choose to treat the underlying social context problem with psychotherapy or family counseling. This is a very different way of seeing things from the American tendency to attribute all symptoms to a biological dysfunction such as a chemical imbalance in the child's brain.

 

French child psychiatrists don't use the same system of classification of childhood emotional problems as American psychiatrists. They do not use the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders or DSM.According to Sociologist Manuel Vallee, the French Federation of Psychiatry developed an alternative classification system as a resistance to the influence of the DSM-3. This alternative was the CFTMEA (Classification Française des Troubles Mentaux de L'Enfant et de L'Adolescent), first released in 1983, and updated in 1988 and 2000. The focus of CFTMEA is on identifying and addressing the underlying psychosocial causes of children's symptoms, not on finding the best pharmacological bandaids with which to mask symptoms.
